Mark your calendars for July 28, 2019, from 10:00 - 17:00 JST, because we'll be attending Summer Wonder Festival in Tokyo. Leading up to the big day, we'll be showcasing special sneak-peeks, a full statue reveal, license announcements, and—of course—a giveaway contest! Be sure you're a member of the Figurama Collectors Hub so you don't miss a minute of the special announcements we have in store!
If you're planning to meet us at the event in person, be sure to visit booth #3-09, where we'll be giving away a free statue (and you'll have excellent odds of winning)! See you there!
Wonder Festival (Japanese writing: ワンダーフェスティバル) is the largest hand model exhibition in the world. The organizer is the old Japanese toy manufacturer Ocean Hall (KAIYODO, founded in 1964, the current president Miyawaki Kenichi). The exhibition was originally founded in 1984 by General Products, the predecessor of GAINAX. It was taken over by Ocean Hall in 1992 and has been for 25 years. The latest official data of WF2017 (summer) held on July 30, 2017 showed that WF exhibitors (number of individual creators) reached 1,978 and the number of exhibitors was 50,757.
It’s coming to the end of the year, so at Figurama we’re starting to look ahead to the next year and think about what beautiful anime statues we’re going to bring to life in the way that only Figurama can. With that, involves us looking back into our past to make sure we’re keeping up the high-quality design and wow factor that we’re known for.
